Gay Scene
This trip travels to a conservative area. We encourage you to experience the destination and culture with the following in mind:

Accommodation
We do not foresee any problems, however there may be occasions when a same sex couple may be asked to sleep in single beds rather than sharing a double. We appreciate your cooperation.

Public Display of affection
These are frowned upon in this region among all travelers, not just those on an Adventure. This includes holding hands in public.

Gay Activities
Travel to Burma and discover a country of mythical landscapes, ancient possessions and some of the friendliest folk you will ever meet. Burma is a unique and fascinating destination where you will have a charming experience. Homosexuality being still illegal, the country does not offer a very open gay scene, but gladly you will find some gay friendly places. Of all, experience Burma for its beautiful places, distinctive features and culture.
